As slept each night,something bit me. After the first night, I noticed two bites on my hand. I didn't see the creature that bit me; I assumed a mosquito. After the second night, I counted ten additional bites, on my forearm, upper arms, feet, thigh, and calves. Upon my return home, I looked for photos of insect bites online. While not positive, I suspect that the room I stayed in probably has bedbugs. I would not recommend this hostel to a friend without my next stay resulting in no insect bites

The only possible complaint I could have with this location is the painfully slow wifi. Other than that it's fantastic, and such a BEAUTIFUL old building too! Love it!
